a special report coming out on the gun debate. on the cover, three gun control advocates, michael bloomberg, vice president joe biden, and former congresswoman gabrielle giffords. richard stengel is "time's" managing editor. tell me, do you think they can change the conversation and actually get something done, or is this going to be sort of blowing in the wind? >> i think newtown, andrea, really did change the conversation. it was so heinous, so disruptive, so disturbing that people have started to look at gun control, gun regulation in a different way. i think the administration, i think the three gun fighters on our cover believe that they can now marshal the great middle of america, even the majority of legal gun owners in america for common sense regulation, for closing the gun show loophole, for having better background checks and all of that sort of thing. i think this is the moment, and i think they will get something done. >> at the same time, in pennsylvania, which is a big gun-supporting state, we've got a big gun show in february, the annual gun show, the people who manage that

districts across america. not just from michael bloomberg but obviously from gabby giffords' efforts and others. and you're going to see whatever money the nra spends in 2014 you'll see that double, triple, quadrupled from people who support sensible gun control. so what once was the safe vote in a lot of districts is no longer going to be the safe vote. and i can tell you, chris, i know a thing or two about politics. republicans got angry with me over the past year when i told them mitt romney was in trouble. i can tell you something. in 2014 in my district in northwest florida, a district jerry fall wwell called the most conservative in america, there's no doubt this would be the right move for me to run as a fiscally conservative republican, a pro-life republican who has said enough to survivalists and extremists. the second amendment is about protecting our homes and hunting with our friends and family members. it's not about military-styled assault weapons that ended up killing, you know, 6-year-old and 7-year-old kids in connecticut. >> i'm on your side. thank you joe scarborou
